Most astrologers will tell you that they didn’t start out wanting to become astrologers. It’s one of those professions that picks you, rather than the other way around.
I never even used to believe in astrology. I started my career as a serious-minded journalist, covering oil, nuclear power, electricity, and global warming, well before Al Gore made it a household word.
In the early 1990s, I began formal Tarot studies, which inevitably led to the study of astrology. I fought it, for the same reason many people in our culture do. There’s a built-in bias against astrology as superstitious pseudoscience. Intelligent people don’t believe in astrology. But at some point, I realized that the material world is a small part of a deeper existence that is all around us but that many of us can’t or don’t want to see. Astrology is a tool for accessing this greater truth.
Because of my writing background, I eventually landed a job writing astrology reports and forecasts (long, in-depth ones, not the newspaper variety). That, in turn, led to a job editing and designing new products for a major astrology website with millions of readers around the world. Many of you may have read my forecasts, without knowing they were mine.
Like many beginning astrologers, I did my “internship” through free readings for friends and coworkers. Finally, in 2004, after nearly ten years of studying, I began my own private consulting practice.
In January 2006, I launched The Pisces Chronicles, a blog about the astrology of world affairs, human evolution, the future, and the state of the universe. The blog is closed, but you can click on the link below to find some articles from my archive.
I am an Aquarius born on the Celtic cross-quarter day of Imbolc, with Moon in Pisces.
